The Mirabal Sisters:
From Caterpillars to Butterflies

*Honorable Mention, 2022 International Latino Book Awards.

“An inspiring and unusual story of heroic women.” — Kirkus Reviews

Born in a small town in the Dominican Republic, the Mirabal sisters lived during a period when the country was under a harsh dictatorship. Although three of the sisters, Patria, Minerva, and María Teresa, did not witness the outcomes of their bravery, they fearlessly stood up against the oppressive regime. In tribute to their passing on November 25, 1960, the International Day for the Elimination of Violence Against Women is commemorated yearly on November 25.
